Cry Out

Sometimes in life, we become fearful of what our future may hold for us.

There are times when we also face complete distress and/or discontentment. Whether it be in the form of career, health, family, finances, etc.

Many times we face extreme circumstances…
Often one right after another…
Oftentimes, it can become so overwhelming that we do not see the light at the end of the tunnel. We fear what the future may or may not hold. The burden becomes so heavy that we cannot stand it anymore. What is it that we are to do in these moments?

As I was studying, I was reminded of three spiritual heavy-weights— heroes of faith– Moses, Elijah, and Jeremiah.

Though they were flawed- as we all are- we would not be apt to call them spiritually immature. These three men cried desperate cries out to God. When they felt life was too much and questioned their existence, they suddenly found themselves speaking to and pouring their heart and hurt out to God.

I believe that today, God wants some of us to cry out to him…a real, raw, ugly, uninhibited, unfiltered cry. As we taste the goodness of God, it is also true that we will face the painful brutality of life.

He wants us to know that we are not alone. Even some of God’s choice servants have felt intense failure and frustration in life. Their prayers were not a sign of spiritual deficiency; they were an indication of spiritual health.

Cry out to Him today.
